Ruth Duckworth

Modernist Sculptor

Her work baffled Leach and made Lucie Rie frown...

'Ruth Duckworth forged ahead in ceramics, free from prejudices about materials and process and uninhibited by 'rules' that she either didn't know or didn't care to learn"

Lauria, Jo. & Birks, Tony (2004) Ruth Duckworth : modernist sculptor . Aldershot: Lund Humphries.

Team Duckworth... all the way. I have been reading far more about Ruth than considering her work. I wanted to have a tiny insight into this gracious, talented, brave, focused woman.

I like her take on 'rules'
